Beginning and Grand Plan

While everyone else is finishing, I am just beginning. Lost. I don’t have TV, and I got tired of waiting so long for each season to come out on DVD. By the time the next season came out, I had forgotten the previous one. Therefore, I put it off until it was nearly done. It’s nearly done, so I am now watching it.

Spanish update: So, since L is in the military he gets access to Rosetta Stone for free. Maybe the government thinks that people will decide to learn the language of the countries they are deploying to. Who knows. In any case, I am getting Rosetta Stone Spanish for free for another year and a half. This is one part of my grand plan to not be bored in 29 Palms. It is actually a five part plan. See plan below….

Part 1. Work. Yes, work. What can I say, I have to stay busy. Besides, gotta have money to live by oneself like an adult and also save for that grand degree I’m planning on.

Part 2. Volunteer. At an animal clinic. Yup, still working on those never ending animal hours for vet school. Last time I checked, I had about 200 hours to go which I am hoping to finish just in time for my October vet school applications. Which brings me to part 3.

Part 3. School Applications. Once again, the long and expensive process of applying to veterinary schools and graduate programs will commence this summer. Vet apps are due October 1st and grad school applications seem to be about January or February.

Part 4. Learn Spanish. For real. I did it halfway-fakey in high-school and had another halfhearted attempt in college by corresponding with my Spanish speaking grandma through letters. It generally involved looking up every word in my Spanish-English dictionary. I have motivation this time though! The guy I intern for at the dairy says that Spanish is a huge factor in the feed animal (especially dairy) industry. Knowing Spanish is a fantastic skill to have in this area of work.

Part 5. Write a Book. I’m serious. I have always wanted to, but I thought I had to be a good writer or be more mature first. I guess I thought I had to be qualified. Come to think of it, though, when have I ever succeeded at something I was qualified for? Never. When I have succeeded at something I had no clue about? More often.

    What kind of book? Fiction? Non-fiction? With Dad #2 not having his second job this would be the best time for him to write the book I’ve always wanted him to write….now if we could just afford for him to write it we’d be good.

      I think I may mix the two….I dont know if that makes sense, but the book doesnt make sense to me either. 🙂

    Four and five = major win. I”m in the same spot – I’m…erm…proficient in Spanish. Aka, could fake my way through a conversation with much stumbling. Spanish buddy! 🙂

    Yes! Write a book! If i wasn’t so useless at writing i would so love to give that a go!
    i’ve always wanted to learn Spanish. But all my Spanish speaking friends are overseas now, and we don’t communicate often enough for me to stay in practice 😦 Now I’ve forgotten most of what i learned. Damn.

    Enjoy lost! I never got into it, but many other people seemed to!

    Learning Spanish (properly, even though I live here I only stumble through) and writing a book are plans of mine too! Good luck 🙂
